Product Overview

Kinexus lab+ rheometer is designed to withstand the rigors of a busy Quality Control laboratory, to
provide robust and reliable rheological test capabilities for dispersions and other complex fluids and soft
solids. Building on the strengths of the previous generation Bohlin rotational rheometers, the Kinexus
lab+ enables the highest functionality while maintaining ease of use.

You think it – Kinexus can run it …

Kinexus helps to define, understand and optimise material characteristics at all stages of the product
lifecycle. Flow properties such as shear viscosity can be measured from flow tests while dynamic material
properties such viscoelastic modulus and phase angle can be measured from oscillation tests. Kinexus
offers a variety of geometries to cover a wide range of applications from the characterisation of complex
fluids to soft solids including dispersions, emulsions, polymer and surfactant solutions, pastes and gels.

The innovative instrument design coupled with a revolutionary software interface ensures ease of use.Kinexus unique ‘plug and play’ cartridge system together with intelligent geometry recognition and user
feedback on system status guarantees robust data for all measurements. Unique sequence-drivenrSpace software enables fully customisable test design for users to set-up Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) or to investigate tailored rheological test protocols.
